dress for success

This is an outdoor show! In December! Some suggestions for weathering an outdoor show in the wintertime:

  • Wear appropriate (warm, cozy) shoes
  • Bring a rain jacket
  • Bring warm layers
  • Bring battery operated lights

load-in & parking

The street that this market is on (Terry Ave.) will be closed to traffic both days of the show, although you will be allowed to pull in to quickly load/unload in the designated spaces right next to where the tents will be set up. When you arrive, please let the attendants at the street barricades know that you are vending with Urban Craft Uprising (they may also ask your name/business name, though probably the former will be sufficient). We have not assigned load-in times for this show, but please make sure you leave enough time to unload AND to find parking if you are choosing to look for cheaper parking in the area. OR we highly recommend finding someone to drop you off so you can forego parking altogether! You may arrive as early as 8:00 a.m. to load in, and must be completely show ready by 9:30 a.m. (This will be to your benefit as well, as we sometimes get some early shoppers perusing before 10am).
Here is a map of all the Amazon parking lots in the area. We also recommend using the SpotHero app to find nearby parking rates and locations in real-time. These lots do fill up quickly since these are weekdays, so please plan extra time to find your parking before the show begins!

where we’re advertising

The Amazon Community Marketing team has advertised the Winter Market as follows:

  • Amazon building elevators
  • A-Frame signs at Day 1 Playfield, Nitro Plaza, and Van Vorst Plaza
  • Internal Amazon event listing site
  • Listed on the Discover SLU website
  • Included in the Public Events email
  • Will be included in social stories and posts the week of the event on the @southlakeunion account

Urban Craft Uprising is also running ads on Facebook, Instagram, and The Stranger!


  • No generators or space heaters are allowed
  • Tents are provided; tables are only provided if you have requested them when asked.
  • Your closest restrooms will be right inside the Cricket building (look for the doors just to the right of the Starbucks in the plaza). You do not need an Amazon badge to enter this building.
  • Because we have been getting a lot of last-minute requests for tables this week, we are going to keep it simple and place 2 tables and 2 chairs in each booth. Should you not need them, please let us know and we will have them removed for you.
